Sigi: A New Platformer with an Old Soul

Steam Greenlight may be changing its name and direction soon but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great games still hoping to find a place in your Steam library. Looking to follow in the pixelated footsteps of Greenlight hits like River City Ransom Underground and Organ Trail: Director’s Cut, Sigi offers retro platforming gameplay with modern day tech performance.

Paprium Sega Genesis brawler

Paprium New Sega Genesis Brawler Video Released Along with Pre-Orders

If you are new to Retro Gaming Magazine then you probably have missed our previous coverage of “Project Y” by WaterMelon Games. This was an often teased, but not much shown, brawler that has been in development for over four years now. Now, over that period we have seen some major claims laid at the feet of what we now know as Paprium. Finally a gameplay video has surfaced and we are able to judge, somewhat, if those claims are on spot or way out in left field.

Wonder Boy Dragon's Trap

Wonderboy – The Dragons Trap release date announced

If anyone remembers Wonder Boy 3 : Monster World on the Sega Genesis, then you are in for a treat. It was known as Wonderboy III : The Dragons Trap on Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear but due to such machines fading at the time sales probably were not as good as they should have been.

Blood on Your Hands: The Horror Series that Won Gamers’ Hearts

The modern generation of horror and zombie games have a lot of their success owed to their retro ancestors. There was a wave of fantastic zombie and horror survival games that hit the shelves throughout the 90s – many of them weren’t perfect, but they broke the mold of how shocking game content could be.

Super Mario Run Android

Super Mario Run Android Running Game Review, Meets Sonic the Hedgehog

Android owners have often complained that they don’t get the “big name” releases like iPhone does. Well, while that is often true, the truer statement is that iPhone gets those big-name releases first. Super Mario Run is no exception. iPhone gamers have been playing this game since December. Android users just got it a few days ago, as of this writing. The question is, was it worth the wait?

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura Receives English Translation on PlayStation One

When you think of console gaming you have to do so in regions. What we see in Japan is often never seen elsewhere, or in any other language. Next is often North America and then Europe with the rest of the world battling for fourth in line for new releases. This means some interesting games are never localized outside of Japan. Cardcaptor Sakura is one such game, at least if you are a fan of the Anime it is based on.

Story of Seasons Hilarious Graphical Glitch Gives Players a Full Moon

Story of Seasons: Trio of Town is the latest game in the series formerly known as Harvest Moon in the West. A mixture of the farming and social simulation genre, Story of Seasons is no stranger to hilarious, and often useful Glitches. Recently a user at the fan page Story of Seasons: Harvest Moon Friends on Facebook discovered a graphical glitch which promised to raise more than a few eyebrows. It’s not often, after all, that videogames give the website: People at Wal-Mart a run for their money. Especially if we consider Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns‘ E+10 age rating.

Free Game Friday #1

Yes folks, it’s time to look at a few games that have fallen under the radar. All of them have the amazing price of FREE as the title of the article suggests. I will not be including “Freemium” games as they are not truly free they have in-app purchases. Is this going to be a regular column? We shall see depending on whether people like the idea or not.
